Applesauce Muffins

What to do with that little bit of leftover applesauce? So many muffin recipes have bran (which we seldom have in the house). We've tried many different bran-less recipes, and they're all pretty decent. But now I've found one that's a keeper. This one contains just a smidge of sugar, not much fat, and all whole grains.

one dozen Applesauce Muffins

Stir together:
1 cup (dry) rolled oats
1 cup applesauce
1 egg
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp oil
1/2 cup milk, orange juice, or apple juice

Set aside mixture so that oats can soak in the liquid.
Begin preheating oven to 375.
Grease muffin tin.

Stir together:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar (optional)

Make well in center of flour. Pour in wet ingredients. Stir just until blended and all flour has been moistened. If desired add 1/2 cup of raisins, craisins, chopped nuts, or chopped fresh cranberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan.
